1 package yellow cake mix
5 cups all-purpose flour
2 packages (.25 ounce size) active dry yeast
2 1/2 cups hot water
softened butter or margarine
cinnamon and sugar


1/2 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1/4 cup light corn syrup
1 cup chopped nuts


For Rolls: Grease two 13x9x2 inch pans. Combine cake mix, flour and yeast in large bowl. Stir until well blended. Stir in hot water. Cover and let rise in warm place for 1 hour or until doubled. Divide dough in half. Roll half the dough into large rectangle on floured surface. Spread with generous amount of softened butter - sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Roll up jelly-roll fashion and cut into 12 slices. Place rolls in one pan. Repeat with remaining dough. Cover and let rise for 30 to 40 minutes - or until doubled.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

For Topping: Combine melted butter, brown sugar, corn syrup and nuts in liquid measuring cup. Pour evenly over rolls. Bake at 375 degrees for 25 minutes or until light golden brown. Serve warm or cool completely.

For a special touch, place 1 cup powdered sugar in a small bowl. Add 1 to 2 Tbsp. water - stirring until smooth and desired consistency. Drizzle over baked rolls

REVIEW: 5 star recipe rating
Love how easy these are to whip up. I add a beaten egg though just because. Like that the batch makes a lot. I have also made these using spice cake mix and they turned out great.
